I have never seen a beach like this. The water is crystal clear and you can walk out so far and the water wont go past your waist. Get there early if you want an umbrella/palapas. There are about 20 of them and they get...More

Breath taking beach, get there early to get a shade umbrella, we arrived around 10:30 on a tuesday. Remember bug spray as the sand flies bite a lot in the shade.

This beach was lovely. The water was crystal clear and still as can be. We went to the section that you can only reach by boat, and it was very secluded which made for an incredibly peaceful experience. I recommend checking it out!

Crowded when we visited over Easter weekend. This is a beautiful beach!! I wish it hadn’t been so busy when we visited but this is a place to hang out for the day. Water is clear with lots of marine life.

This is a very beautiful beach just outside of La Paz. Totally worth the drive. Pack your own snacks...no services.

Spent several hours here with 6 adults and 6 children (ages 8-5 months). We brought our inflatable paddle boards and spent the day on our own private spot. Fun in the sun, snorkeling, and loving life.

Hi, it depends where you want to stay. I believe there were a few smaller places on the way to this beach. But you might be better off staying at one of the many hotels along the malecon in La Paz.

We had our own car. We drove from LA to Baja. Sounds like getting a ride would be a good idea.

I do recall seeing some people sleeping on that beach. It would be a great idea.
